The Committee For Updating Florida State Symbols (CUFSS) designated Rush Limbaugh as Florida's State Prick the spring of 2007.

According to Merriam Webster's On-line Dictionary , a prick is a "spiteful or contemptible man often having some authority."
"All cruelty springs from weakness."
(Seneca, 4BC-AD65)

There are countless reasons Rush Limbaugh was named Florida's State Prick. On his radio show recently, he ridiculed people who use the new energy saving compact fluorescent lamps. Then he turns right around and promotes an energy saving hot water heater. Why? Because he's a prick.

Rarely does Rush Limbaugh's attempts at humor NOT have a victim. Why? Well, because he's a prick.

Rush Limbaugh frequently proclaims he has "talent on loan from God." Now why would God loan a prick like Limbaugh anything? Rush, if you'd like to explain your godliness, please post at your web site, the names of the churches you've attended regularly in your lifetime. You won't do it because you're a prick.

The REAL reason Rush Limbaugh is a prick is because he can't help it.

Rush Limbaugh is a SOCIOPATH and a SERIAL BULLY.

The more modern term for sociopath is Antisocial Personality Disorder. The Committee for Updating Florida State Symbols (CUFSS) did some quick research and found disturbing information on these disorders readily available on the internet.

Here are some excerpts from the Profile of the Sociopath web site:
"This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths."

- Glibness and superficial charm
- Manipulative and conning. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering.
- Grandiose sense of self
- Lack of remorse, shame or guilt
- Callousness/lack of empathy. Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
- Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others.

Other Related Qualities:
- Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
- Authoritarian
- Secretive
- Conventional appearance
- Unable to feel remorse or guilt
- Extreme narcissism and grandiose
- May state readily that their goal is to rule the world
"People with this disorder appear to be charming at times, and make relationships, but to them, these are relationships in name only. They are ended whenever necessary or when it suits them, and the relationships are without depth or meaning, including marriages. They seem to have an innate ability to find the weakness in people, and are ready to use these weaknesses to their own ends through deceit, manipulation, or intimidation, and gain pleasure from doing so."

More information from:


"Sociopathy is chiefly characterized by something wrong with the person's conscience. They either don't have one, it's full of holes like Swiss cheese, or they are somehow able to completely neutralize or negate any sense of conscience or future time perspective. Sociopaths only care about fulfilling their own needs and desires - selfishness and egocentricity to the extreme. Everything and everybody else is mentally twisted around in their minds as objects to be used in fulfilling their own needs and desires. They often believe they are doing something good for society..."

What is a SERIAL BULLY? Here are some highlights from:

"How to spot signs and symptoms of serial bullies, sociopaths and psychopaths..."

- uses excessive charm
- is possessed of an exceptional verbal facility
- exhibits unusual and inappropriate attitudes to sexual matters, sexual behaviour and bodily functions
- holds deep prejudices (e.g. against the opposite gender, people of a different sexual orientation, other cultures and religious beliefs, foreigners, etc.
- displays a compulsive need to criticise
- is evasive and has a Houdini-like ability to escape accountability
- undermines and destroys anyone who the bully perceives to be an adversary, a potential threat, or who can see through the bully's mask
- is adept at creating conflict
- may pursue a vindictive vendetta against anyone who dares to held them accountable
- is arrogant, haughty, high-handed, and a know-all
- often has an overwhelming, unhealthy and narcissistic attention-seeking need to portray themselves as a wonderful, kind, caring and compassionate person
- is convinced of their superiority
- is constantly imposing on others a false reality made up of distortion and fabrication
- sometimes displays a seemingly limitless demonic energy especially when engaged in attention-seeking activities or evasion of accountability
- uses gossip, back-stabbing or spreads rumours to undermine, discredit and isolate
- gains gratification from provoking people into emotional or irrational responses but is quick to claim provocation by others when challenged
- has a cavalier attitude to health and safety
- sociopaths are often excellent actors and mimics

The above internet sites provide a wealth of additional information regarding sociopaths and serial bullies. Many of these clinical descriptions might resonate with individuals who know Rush Limbaugh personally.

An appropriate response from Mr. Limbaugh to these findings would be, "I'm neither a sociopath, nor a serial bully, I just play one on the radio."

Rush Limbaugh!!
